Museum Taking Orders For Bricks

The DeMoulin Museum is now taking orders for a second round of brick pavers recognizing current and former employees of DeMoulin Bros. & Co. Bricks are 4” x 8” and feature up to three lines of text. Each brick is $100 with proceeds to benefit repairs and upkeep of the museum. The bricks will be installed in a prominent space in front of the DeMoulin Museum.

Brick sales began last June and an initial order of 37 was placed at the end of 2018. Wet conditions this spring have delayed their installation. The goal is to get another order placed by the end of May.

“Our first group of bricks honored company founder Ed DeMoulin, all of the subsequent factory presidents, and an array of employees,” explained museum curator John Goldsmith. “There have been a few surprises including some employees from the 1930s that I wasn’t familiar with.”

Goldsmith said, “A number of bricks have been purchased as gifts for loved ones. Mother’s Day is an ideal time for us to sell our next round.”

The DeMoulin Museum, located at 205 S. Prairie Street in Greenville, pays tribute to the founders, employees, and unique products of the factory. Since its founding in 1892, the company has employed thousands of people whose tenures range from a summer job to over 50 years.
